American actor, comedian, writer, director and film producer, Denis Leary lays it all out on the line in this original Comedy Central one-hour stand-up special. Leary, the notorious Emmy™-nominated star of "Rescue Me" and NY Times best-selling author, returns to his stand-up roots with this provocative show.
Leary began working as a comedian in the Boston comedy scene of the 1980s at the underground club Play It Again Sam's. His first real gig was at the Rascals Comedy Club as part of the TV show The Rascals Comedy Hour in 1990. Years later, Leary earned fame when he ranted about indie band R.E.M. in an early 1990s MTV sketch. Several other commercials for MTV quickly followed, in which Leary would rant at high speeds about a variety of topics, playing off the then-popular and growing alternative scene.
Not since 1992 his hit 1992 stand-up show No Cure for Cancer, has Leary unleashed his trademark foul-mouthed rants quite like this. Along with Comedy Central rising star and roaster Whitney Cummings, and his Rescue Me co-stars Lenny Clarke and Adam Ferrara, Leary dispenses a blistering one-two punch to douchebags everywhere and delivers the comedy event of the new year.
His book, Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid, made the NY Times Best Seller List and caused huge controversy when the star stated “There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can't compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks... to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons. I don't [care] what these crackerjack whack jobs tell you — your kid is not autistic. He's just stupid. Or lazy. Or both.”
Leary looks forward to one day not winning an Oscar.
